Why The Different Spellings of the Name Eschbach?

    I believe there are three factors that contributed to the various spellings of Eschbach.  First, It’s important to remember that prior to 1850 most rural peoples could not read or write. Second, our ancestors all spoke German for the first few generations in America and later many spoke Pennsylvania Dutch (mixture of German and English) up until the 20th Century. The English speaking government workers who recorded immigration records, documented land sales, recorded deeds or conducted the census probably spoke little or no German or Pennsylvania Dutch.  And thirdly, the name Eschbach in German is actually pronounced similar to Eshbaugh.  In American-English today, ESCH- is pronounced similar to -esh as in fresh.   -BACH is pronounced with a strong K, sounding similar to -bock or Eshbock.  But in German, -BACH is pronounced softer and further back in the throat, sounding similar to -baugh.  It’s unknown if the German language has different accents in its various regions, causing ESCH- to be pronounced either as ESH or ASH.  This could explain the variations of Eshbaugh and Ashbaugh for the name Eschbach. The name Eschbach literally means; “ASH tree by a BROOK.
